The Cisco C92160YC has the option to change the port layout for different bandwidth needs. Below hows the command to change the default (In my case) port config from 48x25G ports, with 2 X 100G, and 4 X40 to 4 100 Gig ports. This way
c92160yc-x-01# show run | inc port
hardware profile portmode 48x25G+2x100G+4x40G
The above looks through the config for the setting – I do believe you can also “show hardware profile”.
Below shows the config to change the setting, and different options under the setting.
c92160yc-x-01# config t
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
c92160yc-x-01(config)# hardware profile portmode ?
48x25g+2x100g+4x40g 48x25G+2x100G+4x40G port mode
48x25g+4x100g 48x25G+4x100G port mode
c92160yc-x-01(config)# hardware profile portmode 48x25g+4x100g
c92160yc-x-01# copy run start
The switch has to be restarted for the change to be enabled.
